Talia, “Raised By Sad Songs”

i was raised by sad songs
sad songs i was raised by
i never knew what was happiness, or even joy
down in the dump i always was

i was raised by sad songs
sad songs i was raised by
the sad melodies and sad harmonies
put in my head
you’re not good enough cuz i am
“your not pretty’ and
“you’re not ever going to even be close to what i am”

i was raised by sad songs
sad songs i was raised by
the up and down rhythm of the song
made it mysterious and suspenseful
who knew me, who would ever know
“im fine” and “i’m good”
always i hide my type of song

i was raised by sad songs
sad songs i was raised by
the dark, it even made it hurt more,
yeah i always was alone
always surrounded
by negative thoughts and gestures

i was raised by sad songs
sad songs i was raised by
that mother that always said
“you’re going to be more than what they
think you will in life”
but in reality dying slowly
with sad eyes, “cancer?” but always
trying to look happy in disguise

i was raised by sad songs
sad songs i was raised by
those brother who was so mean and teased me
“oh stop playing ugly” and
“don’t ever put your hand up to me”
but you did that to me first

i was raised by sad songs
sad songs i was raised by
that step dad that misunderstands me
“why do you sing all the time” always end up
“shut up!”

i was raised by sad songs
sad songs i was raised by
thats what i was raised by the reason
i love to sing to show what my reality brings
thats what i was raised by

a slow….. sad song…..
